Tears in Heaven….

Hello all.   I just can’t bring myself to post an outfit picture in light of what occurred in Connecticut yesterday. It just seems so trivial now.

I have been weeping ever since. As a former Kindergarten teacher, I can just picture those sweet , little faces. It is unimaginable to me what has happened.

Maybe they were going to see Santa this weekend. At their age most probably still believed and were so excited about Christmas.  And in an instant…….never again.

Meanwhile the politician’s try to capitalize on this and the media jackal’s swarm for ratings.  And a world looks on feeling helpless. All we can do is pray for those left behind.

This Christmas some families won’t be gathering around a tree, but around a grave.

It brings to mind the song “Tears in Heaven”, written by Eric Clapton after the tragic death of his son, who was around the age of these children. I’ll leave you with this.

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you feel the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on
‘Cause I know I don’t belong here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?
I’ll find my way through night and day
‘Cause I know I just can’t stay here in heaven

Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please

Beyond the door there’s peace I’m sure
And I know there’ll be no more tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you feel the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on
Cause I know I don’t belong here in heaven

    Such a thoughtful post Tamera. I’m weeping with you and the rest of the world. I keep asking myself what would cause a young man to do this sort of thing? There is no reason that will ever make sense but as a society I wish we could figure it out so this never happens again.

    What a fantastic choice of words, Tamera. What an absolute tragedy so close to Xmas. xxx

  4. I have tried really hard to not read the news on this. So much info is flying around, so much of it is wrong. A young guy from CT is being targeted because the news used his facebook account as an image of the shooter with no fact checking.

    This is a tragedy. My heart goes out to all who have been affected.
